So did tumblr change the upload image process while I wasn’t looking?
If you have a picture in a photoset it seems fine but if you try to put something where the text goes it’s always that little grey box now. That used to only be for when an image was too large and you had to link to it right?
Like, it’s doing that to fucking jpegs now, let alone gifs :/
Yeah, owning an actual copy that you can actually touch. I can understand that. Maybe you can find it second-hand?
Yeah, I checked ebay, looks like the average selling price is around $180-$200 but I can probably be patient and pick one up for maybe $150. Which yikes. No thanks. I like the game but I don’t like it THAT MUCH, I spent like $5 on the actual game, I am not paying $150 for the shitting artbook.
I’ll hunt down a PDF and admire the artwork that way, I’ve got a 23” monitor that I may as well put to good use.
Shit that IS a lot. Would you be opposed to torrenting it?
no, that’d work but it’s not the same has having a tangible copy you know?
like I guess if that’s the only way I’m gonna see it then that’s the only way I’m gonna see it but that doesn’t mean I won’t sit here grumbling about how ironic and stupid it is that the artbook for the game about the inherent failures of capitalism and self interest is selling for an outrageous price based on self interest and supply and demand.
oh no what have the garrusmancers done now?
that term ‘garrusmancers’ always make me think of a necromancer or pyromancer, but instead of raising the dead or summoning fire, they have the magic of garrus
I also like that Rapture is implied that it was inherently doomed to fail, that these atrocities could only happen in some place like Rapture and the only thing that brought salvation to these people was by someone not worrying about their own profit and well being but in extending a helping hand to a fellow human being, this game gets me right in my little socialist heart.
That was a good game. Fun, narratively/thematically consistent and accomplished it’s goals of making you care about the things you were supposed to care about and wigging you right the fuck out when you were supposed to be.
9/10, would recommend.
9 because it’s got its problems but most of them make narrative sense given the setting as being founded by Capitalist, objectivist, wealthy, social darwinist, free market condoning monsters and none of the characters who make the rare (we’re talking one or two lines in the entire game) ableist, sexist, homophobic or racist comment are EVER cast in a light that portrays them as anything other than morally reprehensible and they all die except for Tenenbaum anyway. The only one who you really can’t make excuses for is Suchong who is himself a Chinese man whose speech and mannerisms almost veer off into caricature territory when he starts speaking in third person, because this is not a character trait, this is a conscious decision by the writers on how to
caricaturize characterize a Chinese scientist.
Omg is that the babies you saved, being there by the protagonist when he dies of old age?
GO LITTLE GIRLS!! FUCK HIM UP!!

Baby Turians. You can’t fight it. You must hug them. They demand cuddles or they will sit there and chew up the furniture and wave their tiny arms while squeaking/peeping/squaking at you.
Basically lil’ turians are just too much fun to draw.
E.G.O.T. - 0 for 4
But still I feel…
Thx U Guise.
Legit man tears were shed.
FUCK, FUCK, I hate escort missions because I always end up panicking and almost crying if the target’s health gets too low, like I nearly had an anxiety attack when I had to protect Bakara because it was too much pressure because it was THE FATE OF THE KROGAN SPECIES and I freaked out and had to pause the game and grab my inhaler I’m not kidding ask my brother he was there.
And now I’m escorting a Little Sister around while wearing the Big Daddy suit (because seriously what can go wrong with this plan, this is a great plan, I’m excited to be a part of it and not convinced that it’s irreversible in the least nope) and I’m just freezing splicers and shattering them, I’m not even gonna loot them, I am not taking any chances, I will protect you small child, I’ve p. much been doing this the whole game anyway just now you have a health bar for me to fret about.
